I'm not sure it was the right check on which to send that message because I think Malone may have been able to avoid him and there was a third guy in there setting Campoli up. But I'm glad the word's out. No suspensions for Edler and Sturm, which I'm pleased with as a shameless homer.

Guys were suspended for way less than Malone. The only message Shanny sent with that decision was that the "Wheel of Justice" might be back.

I like the call that Shanny and his people had on Malone. The explanation he gave was clear in that the play changed at the last possible moment causing Malone to have contact with the head. Good call by them.

I think it's as bad as Shanny's call on the Malone hit.

is that pat tillman on there? classy. i like the digital camo theme but if you're gonna go with famous dead army ranger + camo then i dunno what those random other dudes are doing in there. overall looks like a mess but he had a good thing going there.

ha, seriously. unclaimed, too... i heard his agent talking about how he would be good for a team that lacks grit. i honestly cant speak about the guy that much since i dont know about him outside of his shenanigans but im pretty sure there's better ways to get grit than to bring avery into the fold. i think i posted something about avery fading into obscurity at some point this season... looks like it just happened.

maybe he can make friends with wade laugh.gif

also, last day before the regular season. my girlfriend is quite upset.

edit: hurr read about it on nhl.com and i guess they all have to do with tillman.

i like cherry, but god damn was that coaches corner infuriating. he challenges shanny with how he would suspend scott stevens who was such an "awesome player and awesome hitter," and then he shows a montage of lindros and kariya amongst others getting brutally headshotted and knocked out by stevens after their skulls bounce off the fucking ice.

ugh. again. love the guy but he is really stuck in the past. thats the whole fucking point of this shit. it wasnt stigmatized before and it is now because people are speaking out about it after their brains turn into scrambled eggs. yeah stevens was a badass hockey player but seriously? lindros AND kariya had to retire from concussion-related stuff and he has the fucking gall to show clips of those guys getting their bells rung and then using that to complain about the state of the game?

fucking ridiculous.

FUCK. SCOTT. STEVENS.

If he played today he wold be suspended 90% of the time for his ridiculous headshots, and rightfully so. That guy was a disgrace and the fact that he's lionized by people like Cherry makes me sick.

+1 I'm so glad I don't have to see Don Cherry's ugly mug on TV.

On another note, Jagr is looking amazing on the Flyers.icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif

Hahaha! Jagr is tearing it up. I was wondering how he would look out there but he's been good.

dislike the leafs, love reimer. good-natured kid, down to earth, humble, thankful for what he has, works hard, goes to church on sunday. pro athletes take note: you need not be raging egotistical douchebags, you can be a genuine nice guy and still do well for yourself. god i fucking love that guy. i hope he doesn't shit the bed this season, and not for toronto's sake.

I have a preference for Scrivens.

You're too young to remember Ron Hextall?

Ok I think it's official, Lord Barrington should be watching fucking Ringette. Seriously do you just want to get rid of big hits entirely? Christ.

Post your pool team... 20 teams in our draft, snake format, I picked 4th overall so here are my picks.

Overall Pick # / Player

4. Daniel Sedin (obvious pick)

37. Claude Giroux (pretty happy to get him this late)

44. Alex Semin (sniped by the guy in front of me, wanted Heater but Semin is fine)

77. David Backes

84. Andrew Ladd (someone has to score for the Jets and now I have a reason to cheer for them)

117. Devin Setoguchi (since I got sniped on Heatley this is the consolation)

124. T.J. Oshie (have a good feeling, breakout time)

157. Tomas Fleischmann (expect him to get good minutes / pp time after signing for so much $)

164. Tim Connnolly (held my nose, risk/reward based on injury and hey look he's already out of commission)

197. Magnus Paajarvi (only need 40 points, but he has a strong upside)

I remember him in the mid-90's but at that point he started to rotate with Garth Snow.
